In every cloud, there is a silver lining. There has certainly been a cloud over Betis this season, but there’s also been a bright sliver of a silver lining, and that sliver is called Dani Ceballos.
I’ve been talking about Dani for a couple of years now and it’s easy to forget that he’s still only 20 years old. After a quiet first season in La Liga, Dani has stepped it up this year and has been the shining light, the player with fight, the man of Betis. It’s not all been smooth sailing for him in what has been a bleak year for the club and at times he has single-handedly tried to drag the team through a game, quite often to his detriment, but his talent and desire is clearly there for all to see.
